Gill Caesar picks Missouri
Teki Gill Caesar informed Scout.com on Saturday that he would play his college basketball at Missouri. Gill Caesar committed to Missouri over Indiana, Marquette, Michigan State, Illinois and Kansas. He signed a financial aid agreement and will this coming season. A standout at Huntington (W.V.) Prep, Gill Caesar will follow his former high school coach – Rob Fulford – to Columbia (Mo.). “With Rob being there I have someone that I’ve known for the past two years with him being my coach,’ Gill Caesar said. “That will make my transition a little easier because I have someone there that I’m close to.” Gill Caesar transferred to Huntington Prep prior to his junior season. Gill Ceasar said he and Fulford got close during his time in West Virginia. “He’s a very different guy on and off the court,” he said. “On the court a coach and player can get into it. Off the court, he’s very level headed and one of the coolest guys I know.” “I can talk to him about a lot of things,” Gill Caesar explained. “We’ve built a relationship where he can be real with me and I can be real with him. We can tell each other different things.” Prior to the July evaluation periods, Gill Caesar, a 6-foot-5 wing prospect, visited Missouri. Heading into the visit, he wasn’t sold on the school, but that changed after the visit. “After I was there I felt a little bit more comfortable with the situation,” Gill Caesar said. “They were telling me they were going to put the balls in my hands and let me make plays and compete and earn my position and I have no problem doing that.” Gill Caesar said he also meshed well with new Missouri coach Kim Anderson. “When I visited there I just got a good vibe from the players,” he said. “I felt good with coach Anderson and coach [Tim] Fuller. They want to help me reach that next level.” “The people there and the fans are very supportive of their players,” he added. “They are going to let me rock out. They are going to let me play my game and let me learn from mistakes.” A four-star recruit, Gill Caesar averaged 17 points and five rebounds a game as a senior at Huntington Prep.
